Recently there have been more videos than we're comfortable with showing rats riding the subway (one didn't survive the close encounter with straphanger). And now, the latest, comes with a twist. This time the rat was brought on to the train on purpose, and sits on the lap of its owner, feasting on a shared plate of pasta... as fellow passengers react with both shrieks and laughter.

The rat guy (it's unclear if it's this man) compares himself to Naked Cowboy, and explains that people shouldn't freak out when they see a rat on the train, because,"when they're in the house and they got rats in their house they don't run. They be like I see motherf*ckers in my cereal again you need to put more traps down." MTA, put more traps down please.
